Colossus Bets, home of the £10,000,000 Colossus and the world’s biggest football and sports jackpots, has been shortlisted in the category of Digital Gaming Innovation at the Global Gaming Awards 2014.

Bernard Marantelli, founder and CEO of Colossus Bets, said: “This is a great testament to our continued growth strategy for the Colossus Bets brand.  We are convinced that offering players lottery-sized sporting jackpot prizes, together with a Fractional Cash-In feature which enables them to take control of their destinty, is a winning formula.  Being short listed for the Digital Gaming Innovation category of The Global Gaming Awards further demonstrates that our industry peers recognize how much we’ve disrupted the i-gaming market in a short space of time.”

Colossus Bets has already won one award this year when it picked up the Best Football Innovation Award at the Betting on Football Awards in May.

And it has just has launched a £1,000,000 HDA15 Football Jackpot aimed at dominating and consolidating the HDA (or 1X2) pools and traditional accumulator markets.

The £1,000,000 HDA15 is a weekly 15 leg pool bet with a 1X2 format comprising a minimum £500,000 win fund and a minimum £500,000 bonus – both numbers net of deductions. Any winners of the win fund will have a free pick on the outcome of one further football match the following week, to try and land the £500,000 bonus.

A full unit will cost players just £2, but like all Colossus pools, the HDA15 can be played for as little as 20p (which buys a 0.1 unit and plays for a proportional £100,000).
